What is a baby sleep consultant and why do you need one? Well for starters, every person who has welcomed a new baby into their home can benefit from one. Even if your infant is currently sleeping predictably and comfortably this could change in the future. A lack of sleep can negatively impact both parents and baby and the sooner you establish a healthy pattern or schedule the sooner you can restore calm to your home and enjoy being a parent. With specialist medical based training as well as hands-on experience, Mindful Mum should be at the top of your list of contacts.
